Honoring our Veterans on Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day, and it provides us with an opportunity to pay tribute each year to those who served in our nation’s military. 

It's a day that recognizes and honors the more than 19 million individuals who have served in the U.S. military. It began observance on November 11, 1919 as Armistice Day, honoring the first anniversary of the end of World War I. However, by 1954, President Eisenhower had officially changed the name to Veterans Day, as we still know it today. 

This Veteran’s Day, show your appreciation to a veteran in your life by thanking them for their service or asking them about their time in the military, or by educating yourself further on U.S. military history.
